[PATCH 7/9] syslog_ns: implement function for creating syslog ns

Rui Xiang rui.xiang at huawei.com
Mon Jul 29 02:31:18 UTC 2013


Add create_syslog_ns function to create a new ns. We
must create a user_ns before create a new syslog ns.
And then tie the new syslog_ns to current user_ns
instead of original syslog_ns which comes from
parent user_ns.

Add a new syslog flag SYSLOG_ACTION_NEW_NS to implement
a new command(11) of __NR_syslog system call. Through
that command, we can create a new syslog ns in user
space.
